The drama continues behind the scenes of Criminal Minds. Recently, we reported that star Thomas Gibson has been fired from season 12 of the CBS series after an on-set altercation. What we want to know is: Will you watch the new season without him?
The actor has played Special Agent Aaron Hotchner since the show began in 2005. The cast also includes Joe Mantegna, Matthew Gray Gubler, and Kirsten Vangsness.
Gibson is far from the first series regular to leave the show. Season 12 will be the first season without fan-favorite Shemar Moore, who left at the end of season 11. Recently, Moore uploaded a video on Instagram that seems to address Gibson’s firing, Zap2It reports.
In the video, Moore suggests Gibson may have had it coming:
I’ll just say this: I believe in karma. Good things happen to good people. Honest people. Hard-working people. Humble people. People who believe in basic goodness … Treat people how you expect them to treat you. Celebrate yourself and celebrate your blessings, as you should, but just know that you’re not better than anybody.”
Season 12 of Criminal Minds premieres on September 28th. The first two episodes were supposedly completed prior to Gibson’s dismissal and it’s unclear how the writers will handle his character’s departure.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Criminal Minds? Will you watch season 12 without Thomas Gibson?
I watched it till the end but without Thomas Gibson it’s not the same.
I will not watch without him
will not watch is he is not on I have not watched since he left
YES OF COURSE
Hotchner is priceless to the show and so is Derek Morgan. With those 2 gone and if AJ leaves the show will suck big time and will be real waste of time. My days are spent waiting for the new shows and to see what Penelope and Reed are going to do next. Please do whatever you need to do to keep all those players and Emily, wow I cried like a baby when she left and cried crocodile tears when she returned. These are the true characters of the criminal minds series. Dave kind of keeps the others in… Read more »

I watched tonight’s episode. Very boring without Hotch and Derek Morgan. So, nope, I do not want to watch anymore episodes. So life less and dullsville.
